A seasoned Agriculturalist in Ondo State, Chief Jemiu Ekungba has assured of revamping the economy of the state through agriculture if he would be given the governorship ticket of the All Progressive Congress (APC) for the coming governorship election
Chief Ekungba who is also an economic technocrat said he will use his accumulated banking experience to improve the economy of the state.
The Owo High Chief promised to revive the ailing and moribund Industries across the state to generate employment for the teaming youths who are daily roaming the streets in search of the unavailable white collar jobs.
According to him, his Government will also empower the Youths to be employers of Labour by assisting interested ones to establish small scale industries to secure loans from banks.
Commenting on the present economy situation in the state, Chief Jemiu said a situation where government relies solely on what comes from the federation account could not be in the best interest of the people and even the Civil Servants.
He however expressed concern and disappointment over the inability of senior citizens of the state to enjoy life at retirement even after serving their father land meritoriously for over 30 years.
These people, he said are now in their old age and they should not be deprived of access to dividends of democracy.
Meanwhile, National Leader of Ondo State Students body, Mr. Wale Akorede has assured that Ondo State Students in all Tertiaty Institutions across the country will ensure the success of Chief Ekungba by November 26, 2016.
Akorede said, Chief Ekungba is the best candidate among those parading themselves for the Alagbaka Government House going by his antecedents.
He recalled how a good number of youths are enjoying scholarship to study in various higher institutions across the country based on his personal effort.
He therefore assured the youths that they shall be better off if they could support Chief Ekungba to achieve his political ambition.
